Fresh Bread

A few days ago, I decided to load up the bread maker and crank out a loaf. When the final beep sounded, I opened up the lid to see what looked like a volcanic landscape–not the smooth loaf I was expecting. It turns out, after testing again, that the mixer is not mixing. The heater does a fine job of heating the liquid and melting the butter, but there is no mixing, and that makes for a hardened lump of stratified ingredients.

On the second test, I pulled the ingredients after the bread maker did not work, dumped them in a mixer. I let the dough rise, beat it down, let it rise again, and then stuck it in the oven. We all enjoyed fresh, warm bread for dinner.
